    I have been reading this site for a couple of months now, and I have decided to join. I am rebuilding a '76 blazer 4X4 I have it stripped to the frame and I just sandblasted the frame.
    Since I live in Wisconsin the body is rusted so I got a '75 tub from Texas and plan on putting on a soft top.
    I got a 14 bolt ff rear end and I was going to put on a ORD 4" spring flip. Does anyone know where I can get a "stock" rear lift springs reasonable. the stores aroung here want 200 for them
    Thanks in advance

    Most guys just go to a junk yard and get one from an 87 or newer pickup. They ride alot better. I don't know how much the springs sell for, but you would want to add new polyeurathane bushings to them.
